What Kind Of Ivy Is Suitable For Climbing Brick Walls?


Question: I have planted several kinds of ivy to climb on our brick home. All of them ramble on the ground instead of climbing. Would you tell me how to make them climb? CS, Tennessee.

Answer: The ivy suitable for climbing a brick wall is Boston ivy. The English ivies are unable to cling to brick walls unless they are given some assistance. Boston ivy will require no support and the small cup shaped attachments on short tendrils attach the vine very firmly to brick or stone.
